Making Stories: Libraries & community publishing

Our presentation at SXSWi 2012.
Many thanks to the awesome Nate Hill, Michael Porter, and Char Booth for rocking the house.
*note: audio is available here: http://schedule.sxsw.com/2012/events/event_IAP9273 *
Good libraries are community-minded, technologically-aware, devoted to increasing access to information, and interested in preserving the local cultural heritage. Good newspapers aggregate and curate information for their readers, prioritize the local population, and are the record of a place, a time, a citizenry. Both believe they must tell stories for everyone, not just themselves.
Libraries have experience with media production, and are already a known community resource. Supporting communication within their community falls within the library’s mandate to increase access to information. Building on the “maker” ethic, how can libraries help their communities make their own news, write their own stories, publish their own histories?
